This is a neat piece! It is a United States navy cartridge box. The outer flap has the "USN” embossing still visible. The bottom of the box has the original brass finial intact. The inner flap is still intact and has the excellent stamping of "*NAVY YARD / PHIL / 1863" in the center of the flap. It has had the small implement compartment removed. What makes this one cool is that the original tin for holding the cartridges is still intact on the innermost compartment. This tin is usually missing in action. The box itself measures 4-5/8ths inches by 4 inches in overall size. This is a fine displaying box that has the Philadelphia Navy Yard marking as well as the 1863 production date.
